“She is not a responsible mother your Worship.
“Each time the children complain about school fees and food.
“During my leave in August to October I left for Chiredzi to a part time job so that my children could have something to eat but to my surprise their school fees were not even paid up to date,” he said.
“We worked together at the Ministry of Agriculture but she lost her job because of her carelessness.
